Testimonials and Customer Reviews


We love to hear from our customers and we thought you might too.


Hi Carolyn and Howard,

The rock is absolutely perfect. Sawyer was a big dog so the print is the perfect size. We have had rocks made for our other dogs in the past, but none of them have been as great as this one. I think we will be using you to re-do our 2 other rocks. I will be in touch soon.

Thank you so much for your beautiful rock. It makes this terrible time of losing our Sawyer a little bit easier.

Hello to you both-

Oh my gosh the slates are both PERFECT!  They are of such high quality- so beautiful- so PERSONALIZED- which is so special to be able to do- especially for a wedding- thank you so so much!!

I appreciate you making them affordable too- all the more since I was getting two.

Your talent is incredible- I’m so happy to have these two special pieces to give as gifts in person to two young women starting out their married lives- this will be a warm reminder of our good thoughts being with them as they begin their journey as married women.  I appreciate you getting them to me well in advance of our travel date too- you guys are MOST AWESOME!!!!

Hello Carolyn & Howard,

I received the slate a few days ago, and put together the plaque this weekend. It turned out just as I had hoped, and that's entirely due to the great work  you did on the slate. The quality of your workmanship is superb and your customer service is second to none.  

Thank you very much.  

With all best wishes, 

Ernie, CA






Great product and very nice people to work with. It is the nicest house # plaque in our neighborhood for sure.  Don and Kristie, ID






I received the order in less than a week and I am extremely pleased with it. Owner contacted me the same day to get specific details of how I wanted the stone engraved and then shipped it very quickly. It is hard losing a pet, and I felt that this business owner was sympathetic to my sense of loss. I definitely recommend this company for pet memorials.  Lynette, TX








What a blessing it is that I found you. I am a firm believer that there IS good in the world! People like you prove this! Thank you so much for everything you have done. I'm SURE you'll be hearing from me in the future!

My friend absolutely loved the stone. Thank you again for such a wonderful experience you are an angel! 

I am SO happy that I picked your site and company to order from you have been wonderful and I will recommend you and more than likely be placing some more orders myself in the future! 

I am also going to leave some reviews online, which I never do, but I want everyone to know how great you and your company is!!!  Above and beyond what I expected.

Received package-- way more beautiful than expected.  The recipient bawled as Buddy passed away one week ago today and loved her porch ever so much- an inside, spoiled Westie who loved the sound of the ocean.  Will be doing business with you again!   --Kathy, Florida



Carolyn and Howard,

We received our packages and I just want to tell  you how much we both love them!  We carried them down to the garden and placed them among the daffodils, narcissus, snowdrops and bleeding hearts.  They look lovely.

I will gather the materials I need to place another order as soon as I can, perhaps for Mother's Day!  Thank you so much for a beautiful job and for all your efforts.    Barb, WA


Dear Carolyn and Howard,

We got our memorial dog stones today and I must tell you that I am overwhelmed by their beauty. I could not have imagined how wonderful you would make them. Did I mention that I actually LOVE those stones? I cannot wait to present the GLENDA stone to my mom and dad. Please know that your work has brought much joy to remembering our sweet dogs!  I will be in touch again for all of my engraving needs.  Julie, Seattle


Thank you so much! I received the rock last week. It looks great!

I appreciate your attention to detail with the whole process.

Thanks Again!   Jessica, Oregon


Oh, Carolyn ... How sweet of you. This image is more like Sam, including the face and body changes that you made. Thank you for doing that and for your condolences.  Tonita, LA


Just received the engraved stone and it is beautiful. Thank you so much. And also thank you for the (web site) discount and overpayment check. It was a pleasure doing business with you. I will definitely do business with you again.   Angela, WA


When my friend’s beloved cat Misty died, I wanted to give her a memorial stone, so I contacted Solid Rock Memorials and was extremely pleased with the results.  The order form gave a number of options and the process was easy, and Howard and Carolyn checked with me to be sure they understood what I wanted.  When the stone arrived, it was exactly what I had envisioned and my friend was overjoyed to have such a perfect memorial for Misty.  I highly recommend their services. – MarySue, WA


 When Carolyn and Howard began Solid Rock Memorials, I knew they were perfect for giving my husband and me ideal remembrances of our darling pets. We had lost our darling 14-year old Lab a few years ago and my husband also wanted keepsakes for several family pets from when he grew up. Since our current "old gal" is 14-years old now, we decided to have a rock made for her too. We ordered five rocks. Carolyn and Howard picked the rocks and font styles and layout. We are thrilled with the results as these wonderfully engraved rocks commemorate our beloved pets so beautifully in or garden.  Marilyn, Seattle, WA


Jen T. from Seattle writes: "My parents love the river rock - a successful anniversary gift!"









WOW - thanks. It is perfect - more than I could have imagined. The shape of the rock was lovely, thanks for the extra heart on it. I know that they will be so excited to get it, especially the two boys, 10 and 8 - Snickers was with them their entire life.  Casey, WA


"Howard and Carolyn. You did a great job on Keeska's rock. I tried to get a picture with the sparkles in the rock showing in the sun but really didn't do it justice.  We've put in on the mantle for now. Very pleased with the outcome. Best of luck with your business, great quality. Thanks."     Connie (Seattle)   SRM: Keesk'a paw print is engraved actual size.
